Loveling paints the picture of an unruly, idiosyncratic collective with tender devotion.
Without pandering to audience sympathy, [Teles] creates an exceptionally sympathetic focal point for a story that embraces the messy tenderness of life as it's lived.
A warm and wonderfully universal love story that comes across surprisingly unconventional for something so familiar ...
"Great Brazilian melodrama. One of the best movies of the year."
The film explores family roles, especially in relation to the mother figure and the erroneous social perception that the primary task of women is to take charge of household chores. [Full review in Spanish]
The second film by Gustavo Pizzi and starring Karine Teles is a genuine work with a credible and empathetic interaction among all the members of its cast. [Full Review in Spanish]
Loveling takes the family melodrama and turns it into a contemporary story destroying cliches along the way. [Full Review in Spanish]
Genuine tenderness. [Full Review in Spanish]
What a pleasure to see reality in the cinema,... honest and happy people in spite of everything. [Full review in Spanish]
Benzinho is much more than a family melodrama... [Full review in Spanish]
Teles runs the gamut of emotions. We don't need to hear her discuss how she is feeling, we can see it written on her face.
"Loveling" becomes a movie of great highs and awkward lows, the sort of film that inevitably becomes a sign of all the great things everyone involved will eventually do, rather than a testament to what they've done.
